New Owners

Are you lucky enough to have a home in central London that you do not use all the time?

Would you like to earn some extra income from it when you are not using it yourself?

As one of London's oldest established short-term rental agencies, we are always looking for quality houses and apartments in the Central London area to meet the needs of our discriminating visitors who come to London throughout the year.

Instead of staying in a bland and anonymous hotel environment, our visitors prefer the sense of living like a Londoner in a real home. If you decide to let them stay in your property you can be assured they will look after it. There is no need to hide away all your personal belongings.

Having been in the business for over 26 years, we know what we’re talking about when it comes to looking after your homes and increasing your bank balance so here’s a simple breakdown of what we do:

  • We find suitable visitors to stay in your lovely London home, usually for a minimum of a week, however we’re a little more flexible with this during low season.
  • We take care of guests and trouble shoot any issues whilst the guests are in your property
  • We arrange all the marketing side of things: professional photographs and floor plans, advertising etc.
  • We take a security deposit in case of any accidents – Safe as houses!
  • We offer a complete service taking care of let-ins and lets-out and providing high quality bed linen and towels so there’s no need to use your own personal linen.
  • Home From Home arrange a check before and a clean after each booking – how would you like to return to a spotless home and a healthier bank balance?
  • You retain complete control over your property and can use it whenever you want: You rent out your home on your terms!

So when you’re ready to join the Home From Home Club, go ahead and send us your details so we can be in touch to come and meet you, answer any questions and see your lovely property:

Home-sharing Insurance. We've got it covered.

Home From Home, together with GUARDHOG, have specifically created a new insurance product to cover hosts when they have paying guests to stay.

What is it?

GUARDHOG's home-sharing insurance, Host Cover, is on-demand, pay by the stay 'full-fat' home insurance that covers the risks of having paying guests. GUARDHOG have designed the cover so that it dovetails with your existing home and contents insurance. And, there is no need to make any changes to your existing policy.

What does it cover?

GUARDHOG's home-sharing Host Cover insurance covers:

- Malicious and accidental damage

- Theft by the guest and unforced entry

- Public liability

- Buildings and contents, and

- Communal areas.

On top of that…

As one can never be certain exactly what your existing insurance will do in the event of a claim when it's unrelated to a guest, the policy states that if something is specifically excluded because of guests staying, you will be covered. For example, if there is a storm, your home floods and your insurer won't pay because you had guests staying, then the GUARDHOG policy will.

What does it cost?

The costs vary depending on the host and the property, but start from as little as £2 per night as long as your using Home From Home.

What a brilliant idea! What do I do next?

We're not the experts, GUARDHOG are. So please email or look at their website We're hoping that you will take advantage of this insurance. So, to ensure it's as hassle free as possible we can set-up a feed to GUARDHOG that automatically allows them to see any new bookings. Once you have registered with GUARDHOG, simply opt for all bookings to be automatically covered. GUARDHOG will ask you if they may share your information with us; please do say yes.
